I think you can get some excellent results from the kit 18-55 lens; don't forget it is weather resistant and that SR will work correctly, you can't say the same for the Tamron.

If by 'SR' you mean shake reduction, the in-body image stabilisation of the camera will work just as well with the Tamron 17-50 as with the Pentax 18-55.

Best wishes
